Hall of Famer Judge Joseph Bataillon has recently produced two more important opinions on post-Booker sentencing procedure and practice: US v.Fleck, No. 8:03-cr-00194 (D. Neb. Feb. 6, 2006), and US v. Beltran-Acre, No.8:02-cr-00279(D. Neb. Feb. 2, 2006).You have to admire how thoroughly Judge Battailon analyzed all the strings Booker left hanging, but I dont think the Supremes envisioned turning every sentencing into a mini-trial after that ruling.

Ohio State Professor Berman is federal Judge Bataillon's biggest fan, for his Booker rulings; can we move him to the 6th Circuit?Sentencing Law & Policy Blog.
